In the month of April, we have made several improvements to the dashboard that make it even easier for cities to understand and manage their micromobility programs. Self-draw Areas of Interest (AOIs) allow cities to explore and understand micromobility behavior in custom geographies, while multi-metrics line charts in the Analyze tab enable cities to compare and normalize multiple metrics in the same chart.

 

Read on to learn more about how these updates help cities better utilize their program data.

Since the first Bird e-scooters hit the streets in Santa Monica in the fall of 2017, e-scooters and other forms of micromobility have thrived and cities have encountered lots of attention, both positive and negative, that comes with them. Ranging from complaints about sidewalk clutter to anecdotes about injuries for both scooter riders and other sidewalk users, there are plenty of points of contention for the media and individual residents to focus on. At Ride Report, we know that this type of attention is not welcome and oftentimes not representative of the larger program, so we recommend several strategies to manage and address negative public perception.

DRCOG: A new model for regional micromobility data collaboration

When the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and its members met in early 2019, they shared a common goal: to manage emerging micromobility programs in a coordinated and consistent manner throughout the region. When it came to shared micromobility data, rather than developing independent resources and tools for each agency, they sought a different solution — a coordinated and shared micromobility data management approach.

DRCOG has been using Ride Report for the last year to share information across jurisdictions and agencies, while better understanding shared micromobility in the region. We spoke with Transportation Technology Strategist, Emily Lindsey, at DRCOG to learn more about how these combined efforts are panning out.

Cities around the world are embracing micromobility as a sustainable and fun form of transportation. As e-scooter and bike-share programs emerge, many cities turn to official procurements to ensure they are able to work with the operators and third party providers that fit their unique needs. Writing a formal RFP can be time consuming, but a well-planned RFP will save you time and energy in the long run.

At Ride Report, we’ve helped many cities get their micromobility programs up and running successfully. Whether you’re new to micromobility or are looking for third party services to enhance your already existing program, here are some considerations when working on your next RFP.

How Ride Report is showing up for democracy

Transportation should never be a barrier to vote, but unfortunately that isn’t the case. In fact, in 2016, more than 15 million individuals were unable to vote due to a lack of transportation. As election day draws nearer, mobility operators across the US have joined the Roll to the Polls campaign to provide free or discounted rides in an effort to encourage voter turnout. Ride Report commends the participation of our mobility partners and is proud to participate in this initiative as a supporter.
